Has anyone tried the Simple Harmony Farms Uncapper
« on: July 08, 2020, 01:37:00 pm »
I have seen this product on a couple videos and was wondering if anyone here has this? If so are you happy with it?

Never used one but have never been a fan of "perforating" solutions.  Honey is hard enough to get out of a completely uncapped cell let alone trying to get it to flow through a perforation.   Like sucking honey through a straw :oops:   Looks like for around the same price you can get the Lyson table top steam uncapper, which I have used and like.

I just bought a simple harmony farms uncapper. It?s the easiest thing I?ve ever used and I wish I?d had it all along. Amazingly simple.

It?s a pain in the ass to clean. Need hot water really.

Thanks Amy . Sounds good so far!  As far as cleanings, do you have to clean it in the middle of uncapping, or does it seem to make it through your extracting project before cleaning is required? In other, roughly how many frames can you uncap before it starts giving you trouble? Does it clog?  Or does it not clog and not give you trouble during the process? Thanks for your answer.

It doesn?t clog and it was very easy to use. Didn?t need to do anything to it at all the entire time we were uncapping.
My stepson did all the uncapping and he had never done any of the extracting process before.

Basically a new frame pushes any old cappings through to your uncapping tank so there?s no way for it to really clog. Also the way it?s put together it auto sizes to your new frame.

There?s a video on YouTube of a guy using one to fill a very large extractor and he never really slowed down. That?s what really sold me on it.

I really feel it?s the best purchase I?ve ever made. Literally uncap a full frame in seconds and there?s less honey in the cappings tank than with a knife.
